Since moving into my fathers I have got my act
together I think , working in the mines has blessed me with more hours of work I can think of even working summer holidays
However I have booked a holiday with my family
at the time to Malta, two weeks in the sun...
that will be right..
We arrive in good time weather was brilliant xchange
Not long before I have found a nice little bar
on the front of Buggiba qwara point.. st.pauls bay
and on one occasion on leaving the place I see
this nice mini cooper keys-an-all
dont need to ask what happens next
well before I know it, I am heading towards Mellehia
well at least thats what I thought, UNTIL
I awoke at the wheel and between two trees..
clambouring out of the car I tossed the keys and
headed home ... about 750yards into my drunken wanderings I hear a land-drover heading in my direction, which carries on right
past me , although a few moments later I hear it grind to a halt, shit they have found the car, not only that another land-rover
is coming along the road towards me, I dive into the undergrowth as the car stops and search-light is illuminated, crawling
through the undergrowth, I stumble on for at least 100yrds past this second car and on to the dusty road, running ,my heart
pounding...I hear some shouting and then a shot rings out, I hit the deck, shit I m not hit good back to my feet and run,
good old detention exercises
running into a drive-way and leaping over a small
wall....ouch its a 25 foot drop at the other side..
crumpled in a heap..torches and rifles appear over
the ledge...woah buddy dont shoot...
arrested and handcuffed it is down to the local
where I spent 3 days before they located my father....ashamed
and a little battered
I was ordered to appear in court in 3days time
to which it was to take most of my money and an
expensive lesson learned once more
I was fined over £200 and banned from driving in
for a year
hasten to add I was then chaperoned round the whole
network of tourist attractions free of charge, the blue grotto, the azure window, the mosta dome as I was skint and my father
did not wish me out his line of sight..
but a good holiday was had
